I offer a comprehensive restoration, repair and conservation service on all types of antique and modern furniture. This includes refinishing and upholstery.I provide a first class service and advice. My well equipped and alarmed  workshop has easy access to the M27 from both Southampton, Winchester and Portsmouth and I am able to offer transportation of items by arrangement. I value my reputation for reliability and punctual completion.

I am an Accredited Member of the prestigious British Antique Furniture Restorers’ Association having passed the stringent assessment process in April 2008 and sit on the Executive Committee.

I trained at West Dean College and passed, with Distinction, their Diploma in the Conservation and Restoration of Antique Furniture before completing a further year and achieving a Post Graduate Diploma from the University of Sussex in 2003 in the Conservation and Restoration of Antique Furniture. I then worked alongside an experienced restorer before setting up my own premises in October 2011.

I share the premises with my wife who is a picture framer and who can undertake all types of framing and frame restoration.
